Is it possible to overwrite the template files, which are located in /app/design/frontend/default/default/template?
I have to make some changes to some template files like the header.phtml etc. But when I will upgrade magento to a newer version these files will be lost.
Is there something I can do, like locating them in the /app/code/local folder?
